Leviathan - Who, What, How

by Isaac Zadock

Leviathan Video

The Bible labels the armies of Egypt as Leviathan. Satan's network in the spirit realm, hovering over the Earth, is called by the same name (Revelation 12:3). When we say an attack of "Leviathan" we are saying that it is a coordinated attack by the armies of Satan which is often driven by pride.
He beholds all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride. (Job 41:34)
God is describing Leviathan to Job in this verse. It shows that the sin of  pride is being used to influence and cause the downfall of many in the world. There are direct and indirect references to Leviathan in the Bible.  The direct references are:

  • Psalms 74:14, 104:25-26 
  • Isaiah 27:1 
  • Job 41 

Revelation 13:1 refers to Leviathan indirectly, even though it does not mention it by name. It's purpose is to use pride to stifle and destroy lives and destinies God has created you for. Satan is the leader of the rebellion against God, so let’s take a close look at him. The Bible says Satan is a created perfect being until pride came into him.
Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you. (Ezekiel 28:17)
Verses 13-16 describe a being that could be none other than Satan. “Your heart was lifted up” refers to pride which caused Him to fall. He was the first person, the leader, to fall, followed by his rebellious army of angels. Pride often the thing which gives Satan access to us. For this reason, we must have a clear definition of pride:

According to Webster's Dictionary: an inordinate self-esteem (thinking too much of ourselves); an unreasonable conceit of one's own superiority in talents, beauty, wealth, accomplishments, rank or elevation in office, which manifests itself in lofty airs, distance, reserve, and often in contempt of others.

Humans who have a stronghold of pride can be used by Leviathan as agents. They are used to seduce, curse, cast spells, block finances and blessings. Some people under the influence of these spirits are blinded to the fact that they are in Leviathan's grip even though they were not covenanted or dedicated through a ritual.

An alliance is a union for mutual benefit: I will help you and you will help me. Satan does not bother as much with people who have an allegiance to Leviathan.  A treaty such as this can cause spiritual blindness. If you respond in pride to situations, then Leviathan may be allowed to take root in your life and soon becomes a stronghold. This is why as individuals, 'pride' is something we must always guard against so the enemy does not lay claim to us and it does not become a stronghold.

Another aspect of Leviathan worth mentioning is the counterfeit holy spirit. The human vessels dedicated to Leviathan are used to impart things into people's lives. They do this by saying things people want to hear and laying hands on them. The goal of Leviathan is to use humans to stop the flow of the anointing in people's lives and  keep people spiritually blinded by blocking their spiritual gifts.

These human vessels may be leading a church or are under religious leaders who are very friendly but very dangerous. They are very ritualistic and this can be seen by actions that they feel they MUST perform when they pray. A couple of examples are:

  • Taking off their shoes to enter “holy ground”
  • Wearing a scarf or some specific item of clothing
  • Going to a specific place to pray

Anytime you believe that there is something that you have to do every time to enter into God’s presence or to receive from Him, this is pride. Jesus said the highest faith was from the soldier who knew He could pray for a child in another city and his servant would be healed. He never did the same action twice when healing people. Unless the Holy Spirit gives us a special direction to do something, only our words of faith are needed.

Someone under the influence of these demons may seem gifted in spiritual things. They will encourage prophetic acts. The key to spotting who Leviathan has a hold:

Do they want to be the solution with their prayers instead of helping learn to pray and become free by yourself with the help of the Holy Spirit.

What should we do if we feel Leviathan is coming after us?
Lay your hand on him, remember the battle, do no more…  None is so fierce that dare stir him up… (Job 41:8 & 10)
God warned Job that touching Leviathan leads only to regret. Leviathan resides in heaven. This is where Satan and his army operate from until the Lord will cast him out. (Luke 10:18) 
 The heavens, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men. (Psalm 115:16)
We do not have authority in the Heavens, only the Lord does. If you challenge Leviathan in prayer then you have wielded unauthorised authority because it resides in the heavens, which you and I have no power over. There will be backlash which is  revenge from Leviathan if you don't repent. You have been given power on earth, but not all power like the Lord has to engage in heaven’s warfare.
In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. (Isaiah 21:1)
Our Lord is the only one who can battle Leviathan. We need to cry out to Him to deliver us from Leviathan.
Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you. (Jude 1:9)
When Moses died, Satan, the leader of Leviathan army, tried to lay claim to Moses as a son of pride as he wanted to take his body when he died, but God did not allow it. Instead, the angel said "the Lord rebuke you" because he recognised that only the Lord has absolute authority over Leviathan and would destroy him at the appointed time. We need to put this verse in proper context to see the fullness of what is being discussed:

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. (Jude 1:8)

The Greek word blasphēmeō is translated “speak evil” but means to reproach, rail at, revile. The word translated “dignities” is doxa and it means things belonging to God. The people who are attacking Satan wrongly are reproaching or coming against things under God’s control. The next verse gives the example of how it should be handled, by calling upon the Lord then gives a warning “Woe to them!)

Under the Influence

If you have a strong seer’s gift and discerning of spirits, you may be able to tell if someone is under the influence of Leviathan. There are different degrees of this influence but you are not allowed to judge them with your words. God forbids it. (Matthew 7:1-3)

We may discern when people walk in pride or have a Leviathan influence passed down to them generationally.  They tend to look down on you as if something is wrong with you. Leviathan will cause you to do extremely provocative things such as nude bathing on lakes or beaches, people who dress in extremely suggestive swimming suits by the seashore, or fashion that promotes the worship of the human body.

A covenant may be entered into with Leviathan. This is done most often through impartation (touch) or rituals. This can happen when being prayed for by another who initiates you either without without your knowledge. The Bible shows us:

Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. (Psalm 1:1 AKJV)

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:4)

The enemy can take advantage of our ignorance. You can come into agreement by your words, by your actions, by the friends you keep, by the places you go to and by going against the will of God etc. This is why we must listen to the Holy Spirit and walk through this life as He tells us to.

Even leaders may be under the influence or covenanted to Leviathan. They sacrifice human (some even literally) lives to get their wealth, reputation, and power.

Seemingly Positive Aspects they may have:

They have the counterfeit holy spirit.
They may operate in miracles, word of knowledge, word of wisdom
They can see in the spirit as well.

Even if a leader has these characteristics, Leviathan may still be there. There may be anointed godly men and women of God who are actively pursuing God but just are not listening to the right God.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Matthew 7:15-16)

Trees are usually used to represent leaders or people. The Bible says we will know a tree by its fruit. Always look for the fruit of the Spirit in the lives of your leaders: Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness (humbleness), and self-control.  Pride is the opposite of being humble. This trait in a leader may indicate the presence of Leviathan.


Warning Signs:
Their goal is to have people run to them for miracles, breakthroughs, healings instead of to Jesus.
They are prideful and will always want you to acknowledge that THEY are a leader with a title.
Will be gaps in the fruit of the Spirit.

Be careful that you don’t come under this leadership. If you have, you will need to confess, repent (turn away from it) and renounce their spiritual leadership as well as sever any soul ties.

DISCERNING SPIRITS:

The Bible reveals two types of spiritual sons:

sons of pride   (Job 41: 34 KJV)
sons of Yahweh (God) (Romans 8:14, Psalms 82:6, 2 Corinthians 6:18 and Galatians 3:26)

The word “son” in the Bible often refers to “mankind” both male and female. Leviathan is king over all the sons of pride and a network that influences land, things under the earth and in heaven. In contrast, Yahweh has spiritual sons who operate through love.

Some sons have covenants with Leviathan and some are just blind victims. There are different levels of influence Leviathan has on the human race that causes it to become a stronghold. They are individual, family, national and governmental levels.

Sometimes these agents have emotional outbursts when Leviathan has taken over them completely. The presence they carry fills the atmosphere. It’s hypnotic and invasive. It may cause headaches, clouds your mind, causes restlessness, feeling of being held down, feeling of torment or pain in the body. There is usually a heaviness on these agents. It doesn’t matter whether or not you see them in person or speak on the phone, the presence is still the same, some are stronger than others.

I have seen people who go to church, pretending to be a Christian but are not. They look and sound just like you and I but are not. They seek to draw us away from God to self awareness which centers around pride which the enemy thrives on. The Lord is saying some of you need to break away from this assignment. He is saying to renounce, repent and apply the blood of Jesus to what He reveals.


TRIGGERING ATTACKS OF LEVIATHAN

There are many things which may bring an attack of Leviathan into our lives. Many of these are connected to an issue with pride in our own lives. Let's break these things up into two groups:

Associations

Being linked to Leviathan by ancestry or bloodline
Dedication by birth or later in life
Fellowshipping with Agents (leaders operating in pride)
Friends with this spirit
Eastern religions
Coming into agreement with agents who are on assignment – God usually warns in dreams about their agenda

You must remove yourself from these relationships in order to remove this attack. If it is a bloodline issue or dedication, you may need to handle this in the Courts of Heaven.

Sins

Prideful words or boasting
Rebellion
Deep anger
Hate
Judging
Rituals
Accusations
Idolatry
Believing lies
Cultural practices - if they honor something other than God
Telling people when you have prayed for them - this is drawing attention to you instead of God
Encouraging others to seek us for prayer instead of seeking God
Dishonouring leaders
The love of money
Showing of body parts to arouse the opposite sex
Reading or possessing books based on Pride
Lusting continually - focusing things that are arousing
Sleeping with someone dedicated to Leviathan
Yoga poses which are designed to bring your body into alignment with a god.

These things may give Leviathan access to you. Before you call upon the Lord, you must confess your sins (see these things the way God does) and repent (turn from them) from these things. After asking for the Blood of Jesus to cover these sins, then you can ask for the Lord’s help in removing the attack.

ATTACKS

Sometimes we can spot a Leviathan attack by the symptoms associated with his presence. This is a list of things I have discovered may indicate an attachment of Leviathan in our lives:

Breathing problems (Asthma)
Restlessness
Frustration
Inclination to do evil
Feeling of something coiled up inside you – waist, spine, pelvis, ankles (both or left)
Pressure at the front and back of the head – blocked mind
Struggling to move forward in life
Marriage delays
Financial struggles
Demonic dreams
Marks or scratches on your body
Struggle to read or meditate on the Bible
Trouble seeing or hearing in the Spirit
Struggling to relate to others
Feeling of coldness in your body
Mind forgetfulness
Whirlwind sounds in your ears
Strong urges to have sex outside marriage against your wishes
Being under so much pressure that you curse the day of birth your birth or wish for death

Any demonic attack may have the charastics of Leviathan. The difference in the two is the severity of the attack. If you have stirred up Leviathan by provoking him with unauthorized authority or something else, then the attack will come from many sides at once.

PRAYERS
A revelation of the point of entry, the sin in our life, is usually the most effective way to break free of an attack of Leviathan. This allows us to close the doors we have opened so the Lord can remove this attack.

1. Humble yourself and cry out to God to deliver you like the Hebrews did in ancient Egypt (Exodus 2:23):
- to show you when & how it came into your life.
2. Renounce your ancestors involvement with Leviathan
3. Forgive your  ancestors and those involved
4. Ask God to forgive you for walking into the sin that initiated it.
5. Break soul ties with ancestors or agents so there is no access through astral projection in the body
6. Break covenants or ties that the Holy Spirit reveals
7. Apply the blood of Jesus
8. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you guard your heart (or self) from pride.

FUTURE PROTECTION

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (1 Corinthians 9:27)

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. (1 Corinthians 11:28)

We must be vigilant and examine ourselves to remove sin and especially pride.

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two
Roadmap to Heaven
Destroying Curses
in the Courts of Heaven


Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.

Angels Believe in You

In March of 2014 I released Angels Believe in You. This book covers a 13 year period of my life where some interest things occurred:
  • I heard the voice of God

Have you ever wondered…
  • What do angels and demons look like? 
  • How can angels help us? 
  • What proof do we have that angels are among us? 
  • What power do we have over demons? 
Inside the pages of “Angels Believe in You” you will find some surprising answers.
